Nintendo has released a new song coming to Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion, revealing a brand new character and an interesting hint at a potential plot in the process.

Meet Dedf1sh, a DJ from the Splatoon universe who had a bright, promising future. As the tweet below states, Dedf1sh was pursuing the idea of ideal music, exploring the depths of an underground experimental facility before becoming "disinfected". Despite this turn of events, this new character continues to create music and these tunes can be heard throughout the facility.

While any further details surrounding this new musical being are yet to be revealed, we expect to bump into them as we explore the facility in the campaign. It's also quite likely that this "infection" could play a major part of the plot - we've already seen some strange new creatures that will appear in its murky depths and things are looking a little darker than what we're used to from the franchise.

If you want to check out the new song that was revealed, take a look here. In the meantime, though, let us know your thoughts on this new character and potential dark tones for the upcoming story.
